Bully and goody: 10 films about the love of people from different worlds

Sometimes you have to really fight for love. The difference in age, education, lifestyle, origin can cause dissatisfaction with relatives, friends, and even the whole world around. However, you can’t command the heart: a bully can fall in love with a good girl, and a millionaire can fall in love with a poor man. It is not surprising that films about the love of people from different worlds are so full of passions, intrigues and experiences.

After (trilogy, 2019, 2020, 2021)

The melodramatic trilogy is an adaptation of the world bestsellers by writer Anna Todd. Fiery feelings connect a diligent student from a good family and a charming bad boy with a troubled past. However, a loving couple also has serious reasons for parting: career prospects, addictions, attempts to establish relationships with someone from their circle. Can true love overcome all kinds of obstacles?

What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
